Tarowa Arrival

Finally got the computer to boot up. The enter key no longer works and it wanted me to choose something during boot so.... I hope to find a fix for it here! but we are still on a small rock in the middle of the Pacific! Who knows.

We had a slow but mostly uneventful crossing. Only tore the main again. I don't know what's up with that. It tore right next to the patch we put on before. We'll just have to sew it up again. The first day and a half we had less than 5 knots of wind and only made 20 miles. Then the wind did come up to 15 and we made it here in only two more days. It should have been 48 hours inst3ead of 80 something.

We brought two passengers from Nikunau. The son and wife of Tautebua (Tauty) who is Tauta & Rubis uncle from Fanning. They are coming to Tarowa to go to school. Tererebu to the 18 month seaman's school so he can get a job on a container ship and Taneta to be a school teacher. The both had a little of the seasick on the way but not too bad. They did eat a few meals.
